Petition circulating for Hunter town hall

Duncan Hunter, Darrell Issa and Donald Trump, so happy together/File

A petition asking Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-50th District) to hold a town hall meeting attracted more than 100 signatures in less than a day, a number that keeps growing.

Circulated Sunday at Change.org, visit here, by San Marcos resident Brina Bujkobsky, the petition said:

“We, constituents of California’s 50th Congressional District, are petitioning our representative, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter , to hold a public Town Hall meeting as soon as possible.

The election of Donald Trump, along with his agenda, has caused concern and even alarm among many of us in the 50th Congressional District. Representative Hunter  will be voting on issues of deep concern to citizens in the 50th District, including the fate of the Affordable Care Act, funding of women’s health, climate change issues, and privatization of Medicare.”

Hunter press spokesman Joe Kasper said through e-mail Monday afternoon when asked about plans for a town hall: “None on the schedule at this time, but he’ll look to do some sort of public events this year.”

A search of Hunter’s official website for “town hall” found mentions only of one “veterans” town hall meeting in May 2009 and of three “video” town hall meetings in 2009.

Many signing the Hunter town hall petition also gave their reasons as follows:

I’m signing because Duncan Hunter does not provide enough forums for constituents to express their concerns. With the election of Trump we are concerned about the dismantling of our right and much needed programs v

I am troubled by the appearance of hostility to women’s issues from the new Trump administration. We fought and won our rights over 40 years ago. Why is this Republican administration now threatening to take away women’s healthcare and their right to choose. Why this War on Women’s issues from Republicans? Separation of Church and State was granted in the Constitution hundreds of years ago.
Why do republicans now think they can pass laws restricting women’s healthcare choices and issues?

Since the office you hold has 100 days in DC, I’m sure you can find time to hold a Town Hall format meeting. I would suggest 6 a year, so that the entire 50th, from Temecula to Jamul and San Marcos to Borrego Springs, gets dialouge with our Representative.

I do not feel Mr. Hunter has any care for the issues that are important to my community. Through the Gerrymandering of the districts he represents east count San Diego and Temecula that have very different interests. I have questions that I would like answered about his enthusiastic support of many of the Trump Administration policies.

It’s time to be mindful all people of your district. Pendulum politics need to stop and the only way to accomplish that is to reel your views into the center so we can all get along and fix problems instead of creating more. Ratcheting up the military in lieu of cyber warfare is not cost effective nor prescient. Time to change the monologue to a dialogue.

Our Congressperson needs to explain to his constituents how repealing ACA will impact our healthcare. If they intend to replace it, why repeal it at all?

4 Comments on "Petition circulating for Hunter town hall"

  1. Hunter needs to explain his actions and keep in touch with people in the 50th. A meeting with him would be worth standing in line to see.

  2. There are so many issues it is difficult to focus on just one. It seems Escondido has been put out of the loop. The most concerning ACA, giving or selling of federal lands in California, Muslim ban, round up of people to deport. Disregard of the Constitution. Disrespect of the media.

  3. I believe Congressman Duncan Hunter will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting this Saturday, March 11, at 10am at the Ramona Main Stage.
